Professional Wine Reviews for Reinhold Haart Kabinett Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling 2014

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Goldtröpfchen Kabinett comes from the higher part in the steep Goldtröpfchen and ripens a week earlier than the grand cru (GG). Picked with 87° Oechsle, the 2014 opens with a very clear and aromatic, still somewhat reductive bouquet that indicates a good complexity. Round and lush on the palate, this is a highly delicate and perfectly balanced, extremely stimulating Kabinett that is one the finest you can find in the Mosel. This is so sensual and ripe ins its juicy yellow stone fruit and mango flavors, but also precise and extremely fine and elegant. A beautiful Kabinett!

Winery Reinhold Haart

Varietal: Riesling

Although they originated in Germany's beautiful Rhine Valley, the Riesling grape soon spread around the world, where it thrives in many countries with a colder climate which can support this pale and unique grapes. Riesling grapes are considered one of the finest varietals on earth, capable of expressing fascinating features of the soil type they are grown on, resulting in some highly interesting wines with plenty to offer those who are looking for something different. Riesling grapes are also noted for their aromas, which tend to be highly perfumed, floral and often with smoky notes accentuating their unusual flavor Because this was always the predominant grape grown in Germany and other such countries, Riesling wineries have always been keen to experiment with its range. This has resulted in dry white wines, sparkling wines, semi sweet wines and several others, but the finest examples are usually considered to be the Riesling dessert wines. These are occasionally made with unusual processes, including the 'eiswine' method, in which the grapes are allowed to freeze in the early frosts, or by allowing the development of 'noble rot', which withers the grapes and results in some truly spectacular and unusual flavors.

Country: Germany

Much has changed over the past few decades in regards to German wine. Long gone are the days of mass produced, sickly sweet white wines which were once the chief exports of this fascinating and ancient wine producing country, and they have been replaced with something far more sophisticated. Whilst Germany continues to produce a relatively large amount of dessert wine, the wineries of the south of the country have reverted their attention to the production of drier, more elegant wines which really make the most of the fine grape varieties which flourish there. Many of the wineries dealing primarily with the excellent Riesling grapes have produced some truly exceptional dry and semi-sweet wines over the past few years, and it seems the world has finally woken up and noticed the extremely high quality of the distinctive produce coming out of Germany today.
